SEO SpyGlass is a powerful Google competition analyzer for webmasters who need to catapult their sites ahead of the competition in all the major search engines. Gathers data related to back-links, their page ranks, age of the back-links, keyword density and so on. These are the parameters that determine SEO and page ranks. Knowing these details about a competitor should help deciding strategy of your own.
Pros: The package has two distinct parts. First is a analysis tool. This automatic and collects the back-links, their page ranks how fresh the connections are keyword density and so on. Given the URL of the site you want to analyze the process is automatic. This works very well and you could see a running log of whatís happening. You cannot see the data of course. You need to specify the search engine too for which you want to do optimization.
That may be because the package we could download was a demo package. Second part of the program works on this data and provides a 7 step action plan for increasing the page rank of your own site based on this analysis of competitorís data and the chosen search engine. Demo package did not allow the suggested step to be displayed. However, the details given out on these suggestion pages do indicate the software developers do know what they are dealing with.
Cons: Nothing adverse was detected in the limited exercise done.
Overall rating would really depend on discovery of anything adverse and how good the suggested SEO steps are and if they do actually improve rankings. Potentially this looked like a good package which very likely would live up to its promise.
